India being a secular democracy, all citizens have an equal right to a certain quality of life and no particular sub-group of the population should be lagging behind in attaining and exercising that right. It is also the obligation of the Government to ensure that lagging minorities have the tools with which they can catch up to the rest of the nation. It has always been observed that all major business communities have their own business platform in their community, but, alas Indian Muslim-owned businesses do not have an effective organization with regards to small businesses, cottage industries, etc. Our efforts are in that direction, to provide Muslim-owned businesses an effective platform.
Religion, Caste, or Creed is not a barrier with us. We welcome all the citizens of India to avail of our services.
